Tom Hoge What's In The Bag?

A one-time winner on the PGA Tour, Tom Hoge turned professional back in 2011 and got into the PGA Tour winner's circle at long last at the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. During the week he shot 19-under to win by two from Jordan Spieth. Let's take a look inside his bag.

Tom Hoge What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSR3

Hoge is a Titleist staff player and uses nearly a full bag of clubs from the brand. He starts with a Titleist TSR3 driver and it has nine degrees of loft as well as a Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X shaft. In testing, the numbers were extremely consistent, with the TSR3 minimizing drop offs in speed even from off-centre strikes. However, it's the playability that is the most impressive aspect, as it is the easiest driver to manipulate the flight of.

Fairway

Titleist TS2

He does not carry the newer TSi fairway woods though, instead opting for a Titleist TS2 three-wood which has 13.5 degrees of loft and a Fujikura Atmos Tour Spec Blue 8 X shaft. Tour players using older models is a trend that is more common than you would think because the fairway wood slot in the bag is arguably the most difficult part of the bag to get right. This is because it has to correctly bridge the gap between the driver and the irons, so it comes as no surprise that many players don't change when they find a model they trust. 

Hybrid

Titleist 913Hd

Instead of another fairway wood Hoge then opts to use a Titleist 913Hd hybrid and it has 18 degrees of loft. This is not a common club we see out on Tour but one other player who uses it is is Webb Simpson. His model is fitted with a Fujikura Speeder 904 shaft.

Irons

Titleist 620 CB, Titleist 620 MB

Moving into the irons he carries a combo set of Titleist irons at the moment. He has a Titleist 620 CB four-iron and then the rest of his irons are Titleist 620 MB's. They go from five-iron down to pitching wedge. The CB version is the slightly more forgiving model with a small cavity at the back whereas the MB is the muscleback design. These irons are all about workability and control rather than forgiveness and are not for inconsistent ball-strikers. All of his irons are fitted with Project X 125 6.5 shafts.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey Design SM9

Hoge then uses four Titleist Vokey wedges, three of which are SM9's and one is a WedgeWorks design. The former three have 46, 52 and 56 degrees of loft and the latter has 60 degrees of loft. His 46 degree model has the same Project X 6.5 shaft he uses in the irons, whereas the rest of his wedges are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts.

Putter

TaylorMade Spider X

His sole club that is not made by Titleist is his putter. He had been using an Odyssey White Hot OG 2-Ball Prototype, and experimented with Scotty Cameron Newport Fastback Select Xperimental Prototype and Odyssey O-Works #7 CH Black models as well. However right now he uses a TaylorMade Spider X in a silver finish and it has a plumbers neck.

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

Finally Hoge uses a Titleist Pro V1 which is one of the best golf balls in the game, and is used a lot out on Tour.
